Oh Hey, it’s Kanye

By Chris McPherson

Besides, eating half my weight in Alfredo pasta, and procrastinating my homework, the Kardashians filled a large void in my life on Sunday night. We are well into another season of the Armenian franchise’s Miami based tv spin off, and boy is it a whirlwind. But something has been missing this season.


Yes, they’ve covered the daily scripted drama and paper thin story lines that seem to resolve themselves in an hour, but this week, E! delivered a special surprise. Kanye West himself, best known as Kimmy K’s soon-to-be baby daddy, made a guest appearance on the reality TV show. Although I haven’t been counting, West hasn’t made too many appearances on his hubby’s hit series and I for one was wondering what was going on. Was he not a fan of the cameras? Was love on the rocks? The network even tried to fool us into thinking that him and Kim were having a deep heart to heart over the phone as she paced back and forth outside her hotel a couple episodes back. I wasn’t buying.

Last night, West enjoyed a nice dinner at a fancy restaurant with Kim, Kourtney and the funniest toddler on television, Mason. Could this be a sign we will be seeing Mr. West a little more? Who knows?

Is This Love? Jordin Sparks

By Chris McPherson

American Idol alum, Jordin Sparks is back with a vengeance in the new dance tracl, “Is This Love.” The man behind the song, Italian DJ Alex Gaudino paired with the Pop R&B songstress for what could be a new direction for Sparks.

“Is This Love” feels like the perfect spring/summer song  for Jordin to make a music comeback. Although she’s recently been in the media for her high profile relationship with Jason Derulo, we haven’t seen much music from her. Is this love? I’m not sure, but it could be a step in the right direction.

It hasn’t been said if this could be the beginning of new album for Sparks, but that would be nice idea given the fact that she hasn’t released an album since 2009. And besides her stint in the movie Sparkle, Sparks hasn’t released any new music since 2011 with “I Am Woman,” which didn’t quite result in an album. I can still hear my favorite line of the song “It ain’t easy walking in stilettos, but somebody gotta do it.”

Not sure where this is going for Sparks, but any new music is well received. We’ll see how the critics feel about it soon.
